A covered patio designed well can provide you respite from the famous Texas heat and give you a cool getaway without having to leave your house.
Shade sail pergola
Propped by solid steel and stretched just enough to allow enough sunlight to penetrate, a shade sail-covered patio looks minimalist but elegant and chic from afar. The space underneath is also comfortable enough to be an outdoor living room. To add some flair, you can add a rug to define the space and some ornate steel chairs. Many afternoon tea and talks await in this lovely space.
Emulate the ambiance of a Tuscany villa pergola by having the posts overrun by lovely vines such as Coral Honeysuckle with coral red flowers or Climbing Prairie Rose which can grow up to 6-15 feet. While there are more varieties of lovely vines that thrive in the Texas sun, always make sure you check the plants soil and sun requirements in order to easily achieve a vine-covered pergola.
Populated by a hammock, and chaise longues, your outdoor lounge need not be stuffy and packed with heavy furniture. A hammock, for example, helps you free up more space by packing it or hanging it when not in use.
Make your patio as cozy and functional as your indoors by installing a compact outdoor kitchen and a custom-fitted fire pit in the midst of your seating area. Cook, dine, and chill with your family and friends in the space made functional and cozy by these outdoor additions.
If you had childhood dreams of living in a treehouse, achieve it by having a thatched roof overhead covering your patio and wicker or wooden furniture. Hang a hammock ready and sturdy enough for a short afternoon nap.
